Would Highly Recommend!
I have now used both top bass headphones(according to youtube) these(Sony Mdr-xb950n1) and the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless, so if your looking for a good pros and cons of each, then read on.
Skullcandy Crusher Wireless-(Bought Brand New)
1.) superior bass compared to the sonys, not just a little bit, but a whole lot. if you crank the bass up and lay the headphones down you can see them shaking.*
2.) easier control of bass(has a slider built into the headphone)
3.) moderateley better battery life**( got about 4-5 days for how I use them)
4.) smaller profile***
1.) very, very, tight fitting***
2.) kinda bland looking in my opinion
3.) not a very good build quality- broke on me within 7 months***(reason why I bought the sonys)
4.) no noise canceling(NC)
5.) bass does have a weird vibration/rebound effect at high levels(this is a weird explanation but, if you've ever tapped on a jar of hair gel before, it feels and sounds like that)
Sony Mdr-xb950n1 - Extra Bass-(Bought Refurbished)
1.) slightly better overall sound quality
2.) slightly better looking(in my opinion)
3.) Noise Canceling- didn't think it would be that big a deal, but its pretty awesome. it wont block out any random noise, but any constant monotonous noise such as fans, it does a pretty decent job of canceling out(pretty much you can hear your music more clearly and at lower volumes)
4.) better Build Quality. I've only had these for a week but after seeing how my crushers broke these dont feel like they would break on me in 7 months
5.) way more comfortable
6.) app to control various settings (i only used it to turn the bass all the way up)
1.) Bass is significantly lower than that of the crushers* (it might be because they are refurbished, so i wont say to much, but if a brand new pair has better bass than the pair i have then my headphone consideration might change.
2.) not as good battery life(got about 3 days for how i use them)
3.) they are kinda big
TLDR: if your looking for straight up the most bass then i would go for the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless all day, just be cuatious of the build quality. but if a new pair of sonys have much better bass than the refurb pair that i have(even if its less than the crushers) then I would actually say get the sonys. NC is pretty awesome, they are a lot more comfortable to me, and they don't feel like they would break on me anytime soon. but as of now it really is night and day in the difference of bass with the refurb pair when compared to the crushersRead full review
